needed a smoke…

just one smoke

I quit smoking in RL over 6+ years ago. That was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life ~ yes am being honest and will admit to whoever I truly was addicted to nicotine for decades.  Did I know I was an addict ummm nope thinking I can quit when I want to, but never truly gave it a thought how hard it would be.  Smoking would relax me in times of stress like when my Father died I must of gone through a ton of smokes or when I was trying to lose weight ~ oh yes I smoked instead of eating and lost the weight quickly.  Usually I do not pose or show myself with a cigarette as the smell makes me sick and the fact that it stinks.  Today was like screw it I won’t smoke in RL but am gonna have a smoke in SL…being in SL you start to get a thicker skin and let comments of those and actions of others just roll off.  Lately I have truly been stunned and disappointed in the actions of some SL residents…taking advantage of peoples kindness is a huge sore spot for me.  I will not delve into the subject but it is something that I have mentioned to others and a friends are in agreement with me on this subject.  SL is made up of truly some great people from all parts of the world and are so giving that it makes me proud knowing that; yet sadly there are some individuals that take advantage of peoples kindness to the point it leaves such a bitter taste.  I found this quote on someone’s profile that I want to leave you with “be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”

One thought on “needed a smoke…

  1. Well done for giving up that strong addiction, my friend. I’m from the generation to whom smoking was marketed as the cool thing to do. At the time, there was little research to go on and when the deleterious side effects started to make themselves noticed in general health decline and necessary hospital treatments it was too late for a lot of us. We’d smoked ourselves rigid over the years. Fortunately for me, I didn’t like it all. I remember apologising to my friends for not smoking like the rest of them – I’m glad to say that people nowadays are at least aware of the side effects and are not so easily taken in. ❤
